Connect to mysql from OpenOffice using ODBC

5 Jun 2008

There’s an article here that explains how to connect to a mysql database from Base using odbc,

but the author makes it sound like rocket science. It’s easy – summary:

  • sudo aptitude install unixodbc libmyodbc unixodbc-bin
  • sudo ODBCConfig
    • driver is /usr/lib/odbc/
    • setup is /usr/lib/odbc/
  • run the wizard, connect using the saved odbc configuration
